Residential Meal Plans

2024/2025 Meal Plan Options

First-year student residents are automatically enrolled in the 300 Block Plan as part of their room and board package. However, they have the option to upgrade to the 300 Block Platinum plan for an enhanced dining experience.

Both plans offer 300 meal swipes per semester and a Flex Dollar balance. Meal swipes are redeemable at our dining facilities, while Retail Swipes can be used at Cafe '65, Big Cat Coffee, Hybl Cafe, and Alpine Express, with each swipe valued at $7.50. Any remaining balance can be settled with Clyde's Cash, Flex dollars, or a credit card. *Flex dollars carry over from the fall semester to the spring semester if a meal plan is purchased for the spring term.

Additionally, upper-class apartment residents, off-campus students, faculty, and staff can choose from a variety of Block and Subscription meal plans. Meal plan selections are made during the housing application process for students residing in UCCS housing.

Meals are served during the fall and spring semesters, with limited availability during fall and spring breaks and no service during winter break.

Please note that you get up to the allotted number of meal swipes in your plan per semester. If you use a retail swipe, it takes one of your meal swipes for the semester.
